Besides the chalk cliffs of the Stubbenkammer and the Königsstuhl , Rügen has many sights and a beautiful landscape. The main season on the Baltic Sea island is July and August, but lovers of the Baltic Sea and its islands appreciate their charms even in winter.
In summer, the sea breeze, which usually sets in late in the morning, ensures that there are no high degrees of heat and that staying on the beach is bearable. The fresh, pure sea air of Rügen, lots of sunshine and wind make the island a paradise for vacationers and those seeking relaxation.
If you don’t just want to spend your vacation on the beach, there is a lot of variety on offer on a total of almost a thousand square kilometers. A comprehensive network of cycle paths is available on Rügen and those who want to relax a bit and still see something can treat themselves to a ride in the narrow gauge railway “Rasender Roland “. The legendary narrow-gauge railway is pulled by a steam locomotive and some of the wagons are 100 years old.
Just the cities such as Binz , Sellin , Göhren or Sassnitz impress with their bathing architecture. Its promenades, piers and harbors attract thousands of tourists every year. Gastronomy and hotels do their part to pamper the vacationers and make their stay on Rügen unforgettable.
